Well done on some good Parkrunning, Skinny and Muddy. But especially Skinny for a new PB!
DT - that's really sad and scary in equal measure. Did he have kids? Awful.
Tommy - well done on your track exploits and not breaking anything.
Madbee - sounds like some solid mileage.
I've not really been feeling the running love just lately. Mileage has dropped a bit and seem to be struggling to complete my sessions as planned. I think it's just probably a function of coming to the end of the racing season maybe a tad early. I only need to get one more set of results in the League though to have my 7 races (which is the minimum) and then pressure is off a bit. That can be done in a 5k too which should be less demanding. I could be in for a prize in the v35 category so want to try and secure that if possible. I'm meant to be full on into half marathon training but just feeling a bit tired. Had bloods done as well that have come back as normal although receptionist is doing me a print out as I never trust their definition of "normal".
Did a 14 mile run yesterday which was the furthest I've run for about 6 weeks. Meant to be progressive with the last 2 at LT but considering we live at the top of a long hill that didn't really happen. I did it progressive until about mile 12 and then slowed for the hill and then ran the last mile which is flatter at LT pace so not too bad I think. Felt shattered afterwards though. Long runs make me so tired!
Might just use any races as sessions though as struggling with the motivation when it feels like hard work on my own at the moment.
Skinny - no actual prizes in Interclub. Well, there was a shield for team prize but that includes the entire female half of the club. So not sure if that counts or not?
